All the Joy of the Season
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the CHPS Wellbeing Team. We all made it!
A CHPS family recently acquired a puppy, check it out below. Maybe over the holidays try to mimic ‘puppy life’: sleep when you want to, have heaps of fun, cuddle the ones you love and greet everyone you meet with a smile.
